The North American tour dates dropped it’s 12th show at the World Famous Whisky A Go-Go on March 12th with an awe-spiring showcase of six-string magic. On stage with Jennifer Batten, and headlining performer Uli Jon Roth, Andy Timmons brought his eclectic guitar styling to life for a full house that was clearly eager to see him perform.
It’s nothing new to see Timmons performing in Los Angeles; myself, I have been honored to see him bring long harmonious solos to the small stage at a variety of jazz clubs in the San Fernando Valley/Hollywood area performing with Simon Phillips in Protocol II.
Here’s a look at one of those nights:
Tonight, at the Whisky however, was something different. With his metal edge, Timmons maintained his solo-guitar prowess, but with a heavier chord structure, and some of that ‘guitar-rippin’ magic that fans came to love in his Danger Danger solos.
As the night progressed, Timmons would also appear on stage with both Batten and Roth for a multi-song grande finale showcase of real guitar wizardry.
